2. Make these cards using file folders and pictures of turkeys. Then have students throw bean bags at them.

3. Play this with or without a mask on. Add a colour aspect by asking students to pick a certain colour and put it on the turkey.

4. Put feathers throughout the classroom or schoolyard. Have students go on a treasure hunt to find the feathers. Count how many they collected in the end.
